The world of Cleopatra VII, lost to the sea and sand for nearly 2,000 years, will surface in Milwaukee in October when Cleopatra:  The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt opens its doors at the Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM).

The exhibition features nearly 150 artifacts from the time of Cleopatra, who lived from 69-30 B.C., and helps visitors experience the present-day search for the elusive queen, which extends from the sands of Egypt to the depths of the Bay of Aboukir near Alexandria.

Cleopatra:  The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt is organized by National Geographic and Arts and Exhibitions International, with cooperation from the Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities and the European Institute of Underwater Archaeology.  Tickets are purchasable online.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation substantially supports MPM.
